Earthee
Sub Pop, 2015. New Copy
These guys have a wonderfully trippy look on the cover – very cosmic, very sci-fi, but also somewhat ancient as well – a style that really does justice to the music that lies within! Earthee's an even stronger set than the debut from Thee Satisfaction – more complex from an ... LP, Vinyl record album

Stargazer
Candigirl, 2015. New Copy
It's been way way too long since we last heard from Carmen Rodgers (her debut was over a decade ago) – but it's really great to have her back, and sounding better than ever! Carmen's really grown up a lot over the past few years – and she's got this tight, sophisticated groove that ... CD

Maverick, 2002. Very Good+
A nice spare downtempo cut off of Cookie, where Meshell takes a moment to speak on materialism. The Funky Noble remix gives the track a bit more pep, with appearances by Redman and Tweet. 12-inch, Vinyl record
CD, LP, Vinyl record album cover art
Virgin, 2003. Near Mint-
Two cuts from Dwele's Subject LP – one of the most anticipated Nusoul releases on the horizon! "Find A Way" is a romantic groover with some REALLY sweet soul guitar work, a trippy synth backdrop, and breathy romantic lead vocals, clearly modeled after the giants of 70s soul, but ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Black Messiah
RCA, 2014. New Copy
D'Angelo comes back after many years awol from the studio – and the result is a stunning new step in his music! We've loved the man from day one – and some folks could well say that he really helped reinvigorate soul back in the 90s – and all his time away from the studio has ... CD

Enjoy The Ride EP
Cherries, 2015. New Copy (pic cover)
Sweet 80s grooves from Social Lovers – a contemporary group, but one who work in a style that's somewhere between the best keyboard styles of the underground artists of the post-disco years, mixed with some of the darker elements of the European scene as well! Had these guys been alive back ... LP, Vinyl record album

Jarrod Lawson
Jarrod Lawson, 2014. New Copy
A stunning debut from Jarrod Lawson – a singer we fell in love with right away – and who we'd rank right up there with some our favorite mellow soul artists of the 70s! Yes, the cover's got a look that's more indie rock – but Jarrod's got this righteous vibe and sense of flow ... CD

Expansion (UK), 2015. New Copy 3 CDs
Live like a prince, but on the budget of a commoner – thanks to this sweet Luxury Soul collection, which offers up 3CDs' worth of killer contemporary soul – but all for the price of a single disc! This volume continues the wonderful vibe of the series – and provides a great ... CD

Love Apparatus
Empire, 2014. New Copy
Warm love and plenty of soul from Jesse Bokyins – an artist who keeps on perfecting his craft more and more with each new record – to create a special place in soul that's very much his own! The grooves are heavy on keyboards, but with these very trippy touches – and the whole ... CD

Groove Theory
Epic, 1995. Very Good- 2LP
The only album ever from Groove Theory – but the set that introduced the world to Amel Larrieux – whose vocal talents alone are worth the price of admission! The feel here is a bit more mainstream soul than some of Amel's later work – but given the mid 90s date of release, the ... LP, Vinyl record album

Purpose, 2011. Used Gatefold
Monet is back, and sounding even better than ever – coming across with a deeper vibe, and a sense of soulfulness that really knocks this one out of the park! The album's a beautiful evolution of her sound – mixing trademark jazzy lines on flute (the best we've heard since Bobbi ... CD

Motown, 2003. Very Good
Badu takes the proud, righteous style of her underrated Mama's Gun album to an even deeper level on "Danger", the first single from her hugely-anticipated Worldwide Underground! In a NuSoul world that is so proudly and deeply rooted in rich soul traditions, Erykah continues to innovate ... 12-inch, Vinyl record

Def Jam, 2000. Very Good+
We like to think of Musiq Soulchild as the Stevie Wonder of the new generation of "Nu Soul" artists, not so much because he sounds like him, but because he does capture his vibe in a way. "Just Friends" takes a piece of Pat Martino's version of the great pop tune "Sunny&quo ... 12-inch, Vinyl record
